IKHLAS

     

The IKHLAS Drop-in Centre (Drug User Program)

Introduction

The IKHLAS Drop-in Centre is a safe space created by PT Foundation for the drug user, sex worker, and transsexual communities of Chow Kit area in Kuala Lumpur. Each of these communities runs their own programmes here.

For example, the drug user community, most of who live off the street, seek refuge at IKHLAS in the day time, whereby nutritional meals are provided at very low price, basic first aid facilities operated by a qualified nurse are available free-of-charge, shower and resting facilities are also available.

HIV/AIDS workshops and outreach work regularly take place. Most importantly, it is at IKHLAS that many drug users feel loved and cared for, and feel empowered to make something of their lives, including reducing their exposure to HIV infection.

The IKHLAS Drop-in Centre is run by 5 staff members and a team of volunteers. IKHLAS depends entirely on private funds to operate.
